" The making of a friend is the best token of a man's 
success." 

There seem to be two particularly obvious 
things about Charlotte. One is her friendship 
with Beatrice and the other is her connection 
with the ukelele. She seems pretty quiet most 
of the time and so when we see her coming along 
with Beatrice, we wonder what the subject is 
that makes her talk so busily and when on oc- 
casions like class picnics we have Charlotte plus a 
ukelele we wonder what ever made us think she 
was so silent.

" The reward of one's duty is the power to fulfill 
another." 

Whenever we think of Lora, we think also of 
Louise, for they are inseparable. Lora doesn't 
make much noise about things, but works hard 
and then suddenly we see the results — such as 
Lora on the Honor Roll. Last fall she was one of 
the able "wings" of our victorious Hockey 
team. In addition to her pluck, she also has the 
quality of being just darling and making every- 
one love her.

"Her cheeks, her cheeks so deeply blushing." 

Honest, now, Billy, you are a shark at running 
Stu. G. and as for hockey, — well, have we ever 
watched you? Those who room near you, know 
of your good practice, and wonder if perhaps you 
don't need a new pair of shoes in place of the pair 
with which you used to shoot goals in silent time. 
We wonder who will take your place next year as 
the recipient of Mrs. Fletcher's numerous boxes 
of candy. And say, Billy, it is awfully hard to 
Study, especially in the morning. Anyway, Billy, 
you're yourself and what more do we want?

"How pretty her blushing ivas and how she blushed 
again." 

Well, Bruno, you can give us the satisfaction of 
teaching you at least two things in your course at 
Abbot. Just what " B. C. " means and just where 
to use "revolting." Will we ever forget Bruno 
when she dressed to go to bed our second memor- 
able night at Intervale! No wonder we couldn't 
find our sweaters and mufflers and woolen stock- 
ings the next morning. Watch her blush when we 
speak of il !

"Silence -is the perfected herald of every joy." 

Libby's another one of those mysterious people 
who seems so "quiet except to those who know 
them" and then — well, ask Sliv or Clara Louise 
or Alma; they know her better than any of us. 
You wouldn't call Libby quiet though, if you 
could hear some of the tales she tells about Hill- 
side. She and Eunice must have had a pretty 
good time there. What is Libby going to be? 
We don't know, but after looking at some of the 
pictures of graceful nymphs dancing on the green, 
that we see in her room, our thoughts naturally 
turn to Rhythmic dancing. Do they have a 
course at Elmira, Libby?

Dot's the kind that can read the latest maga-

A's at the end of the term. Dot's always doing 
little deeds of kindness for everyone. And rave, 
— "Oh, my dear," there's never a gap in the 
conversation when she's around.

"A fine volley of words, gentlemen, and quickly

Listen, is that a Victrola on the third floor 
front? No, that is just Clara Louise singing 
something from the latest opera. Surely if you 
c'imb up the ladder of fame as speedily as you 
climb up Andover hills, you will be at the top 
long before we poor mortals below have reached 
the lowest rung. Abbot will be proud of you yet, 
Clara Louise, and when you come East on any of 
your concert tours remember we are all your 
friends. But, we beg of you, when you stay at 
any of the best hotels in the country, do not get 
up early to clean your room on Sunday morning; 
— the other guests might not be as obliging as we 
Abbot girls are. However, we wish you all suc- 
cess in your career, and here's to our Denver rep-

Is Ellie from New England? Yes. Has she a 
New England conscience? You bet she has. Is 
there anything she attempts that she doesn't 
put her whole spirit into? She can even make the 
second floor wing behave when she's proctor. 
And her lessons? We bet they're prepared as 
well as anyone's. Everyone likes Ellie. Will she 
do big things in the outside world? Wait and see!

"I say just what I think and nothing more or less." 

Who is that who is constantly moving her lips 
in an absent-minded manner? Can it be that she 
was once a nun, and having left her convent, 
constantly repeats her prayers w hich have be- 
come second nature to her? No, that is Ruth, 
our dignified fire captain, repeating her list of 
lieutenants. Truly, we wouldn't be at all sur- 
prised if you should sing them to us some night 
in A. C. A. instead of your song. And that re- 
minds us that here is another singer in our midst, 
and we feel that she, too, will bring us fame.

quently the class is pretty proud of her — and as 
for drag — well — "Hat" does have an awful 
time understanding the clever little jokes that 
go around the school; — but never mind, "Hat," 
there are some others who have never heard of

"Long, may such goodness live." 

Well, Lois, we certainly admire a girl who has 
nerve enough to come down with mumps right in 
the midst of exams. But Lois is not the kind of a 
girl that is stumped by the mumps; she went 
right ahead and took some of her exams at the 
infirmary, and passed them, too, with marks 
which we "unmumpy" people envied. She may 
be rather quiet, but she gets there just the same, 
and we missed her sunny smile, and her apolo- 
getic "excuse" when she bumps into us, while 
she was away.

Take her as a gouty old man (!) or a shrew

well, just take her — she's fine in all those char- 
acters. Just to look at her very New Vorkish 
clothes and hats or her fuzzy hair one wouldn't 
link her up with A. C. A. or Northfield — but 
that's Fran's other side.

''The fire i the flint shows not 'till it be struck." 

The class is mighty proud of Beatrice. When 
she came to Abbot she stepped right on to the 
Honor Roll, and you can see how firmly she step- 
ped when we tell you she's still there. Even in 
the midst of College Prep courses, and when the 
Honor Roll was shortened to nine names, we find 
Beatrice there. She just discovered this year that 
she could sing, and now is a member of that dis- 
tinguished society — Fidelio. Altogether we feel 
we couldn't get along without her.

Julia is the kind that is slow to make advances 
for herself, but when you've made the advances 
it's worth while. Julia is mighty keen on Do- 
mestic Science and her one ambition in life is to 
be a dietitian in a hospital. Julia never has any- 
thing but a good word for anybody, and is always 
ready to do something for someone else.

Oh what a girl Mary is! Mary at the piano, 
Mary on the hockey field, Mary in class, Mary 
just any time is doing things well, and is such a 
good sport about everything that no one can help 
liking her. We always think of her place being 
at the piano, but some of the charming things 
she has written make us wonder if perhaps her 
talents aren't divided.

Trouble? That's Phil's middle name. She just 
walks right into it, but strides right on again, 
thanks to those legs of hers. Do you know the 
serious Phil? Yes, she's hard to get acquainted 
with, but mighty fine when you know her. Don't 
be so stingy with us, Phil. Speaking of legs, Phil 
certainly knows how to use them on the hockey

When Fran came to Abbot, years and years 
ago, the thing that called our attention to her 
was her running fire of comment in class. It 
still does. Fran's right in her element when it 
comes to rhythmic dancing, and Glee Club. 
Fran's sister made an Abbot Hockey Team, and 
Fran kept up the family reputation.

Keany's another one of those clever young

trying to say for ages — and say it in a different 
way. Keany just is different herself. Did you 
ever know anyone who did so much reading? 
She reads everything and talks glibly about 
those books and authors whom we, in our ignor- 
ance, never heard of. Fran was the heroine of 
the Senior Mid play and being college was the 
only thing that kept her from being in the Senior

The pale moon shines on a fairyland of hills and mountain peaks, and the 
bustling wind in a hurricane makes the glittering snowdrifts deep, and all around 
the town is still, for the world has gone to sleep. But here we sit by the fireside in 
our cozy little inn, and rest and talk of what joy and fun our happy trip has been. 
Those silvery nights when the sleighbells ring and our voices join in their song, and 
we think of the trailing and skiing we've done as we played the whole day long. 
How we climbed that steep cliff and tumbled and fell; but the things we ate make 
our mouths water to tell. Now the fire is low, but the dim cannot blur this vision 
that's all too true, for we're thinking and dreaming and yearning once more. 
For whom? Why, Intervale — for you.

As we plant the lasting emblem 
Of the years so richly spent, 
Years of striving ever upward, 
Years in gain of knowledge bent; 

As we feel the love and patience 
Of a mighty host gone by, 
Who a firm foundation builded, 
And upon this class rely; 

May we prove the worthy hold- 
ers 
Of the trust they freely give. 
May this world be fuller, richer 
For the lives which we shall live.

Once there was a Class, who had Hopes of Graduating in '21. The only 
Relic left of those who started away back yonder before an unprepared World was 
swatted simultaneous by Social Unrest and Nation Wide Prohibition and before 
this Exclusive Social Organization had enjoyed a fruity Reputation as a Nut Fac- 
tory, is Edith Page, a Dame endowed with that Art called Dramatic Instinct. 

She was joined in the following Year by Libby Weld, who was strong on back- 
to-nature stuff and Pete Weld, who before she was biting on a Rubber Ring was 
being coached to play the Part of our Class Comedian. 

Then, the next Year, arrived Florence Hinckley, she of the lengthy Pedal 
Extremities, and Marianna Wilcox, who cut loose from the native Shire, and 
Frances Keany, who made a long Trip from Bean-Town. 

And in 1919 with one fell Swoop the Grand Old School was hit by a Migrator 
with a flossy Label -- Sylvia Nicholson; one Miriam Bickford, who had not pro- 
gressed from Pin Feathers to the Age of Discretion ; Martha Smith, who wielded a 
very consistent Knife and Fork and whose Daily Demand was for Something that 
sticks to the Ribs; Dorothy Martin, whom it fussed quite a bit to be compelled to 
Feed Herself under the Scrutiny of Comparative Strangers; a Winifred Simpson, 
whose Painting suggested that in the Great Shake-Up of Destiny perhaps it was 
meant that She should be an Artist; Frances Howe, whose early training in a Cen- 
ter of Sociability prompted her to discuss the Weather with Total Strangers and 
likewise a little choice Scandal now and then ; one Frances Gasser, at whom every- 
one looked askance when she appeared in Morning Coat and Orchid, and that 
Narrow White Hickey inside the Vest, and the Spats and the Curly Hair draped 
over All; Beatrice GofT, whose dignified Suit of Quaker Grey, the chiseled sug- 
gestion of Patrician Reserve on her high brow, the wince of Pain and the up- 
lifted Eyebrow when someone indulged in a Cursory Remark — all these meant 
much to the Observant Faculty; it befell that Carol Perrin got in here sideways in 
spite of telling little tales about when Highballs were peddled over the Bar and 
Public Dancing was tolerated and Women wore four-inch Heels. 

In the Year following the Year 1919, which some People are wont to call 1920,

Hires Veterinarians or Please Help Violet or any other Fool thing; Mary Wil-

One frosty Night they ventured Forth to try their luck in a Sleigh. It was 
some Jubilee and a Good Time Was Had By All. 

Then came the Time to appoint a Leader of our Motley Crew. The Members 
sat around a Table and looked at Each other Benumbed and Helpless-like, just as 
Sprightly as a Congress of Jelly Fish. It was a Combination of Chautauqua, Bean 
Bag and a Peace Conference. They knew they needed a Pace-Maker with Pep 
and Ideas. It was Carol Perrin. 

Then, would you believe that such Rarities as Roast Beef, Turkey, and Hard 
Boiled Eggs, and Imported Cheese and White Bread and Baked Beans, and Gol- 
den Creamery Butter were served upon this Senior-Mid Banquet Board? We 
ate just enough to Sustain our Thirst. 

So, it was in Anno 1921 A.D., when the Moons Waxed and Waned and Har- 
vest followed Seed Time that Six more Youthful Creatures hied themselves to 
Abbot and said they were willing to Accept Positions as some of the Executive 
Heads of the Blossoming Combine. Marion Cleveland, who hailed from the As- 
phalt Jungles of Albany; Marian Ailing, who was not yet fed-up on the Camping- 
Out Stuff; Margaret Ailing, who just when she Felt like Lying Down had to 
Shift Scenery and hear Somebody Chirp in Classes; Dorothy Simmons, whom no 
one could stump by asking for Inside Dope on a Late Work of some Icelandic 
Novelist; Aya Ebina, our Little Representative of the Land of Flowers, who rose 
at Chilly Dawn and hot-footed to a Slave Pen when it was so Pleasant inside the 
Covers; Catherine Knight who got up in the Morning so borne down by Business 
Anxiety that all she could Take On for Breakfast was a Few Eggs and a Couple of 
Patty Cakes of a rare kind of Sausage containing Pork and Several Strata oi 
Flap Jacks and a Tureen of Coffee ; Helen Baker, who would have been the World's 
Champion of the Intellectual Heavyweights if she had worn Ear Muffs.

One fine Afternoon we hoisted Ourselves into Trucks and hied to Haggetts' 
where the Noises of Our Merry Feast carried across the Deep Drink. 

So, after years of Placid Toil, the Baskers went on a Terrific Bat, in an Effort 
to Relax and Recuperate, and for the first time we poor old Birds were un- 
shackled and left to run Wild in the Mountains. With Mr. Bassett as a Com- 
posite of Guide, Counsellor, Friend, Referee, Diplomat, Reception Committee, 
Medical Adviser, and Political Prophet, we managed to subsist. At the End of 
Four Days, the Weary Vacationers returned to this Peaceful Abode. 

Then the Senior Class pulled off one of Dear Old Willie's Famous Vaudeville 
Sketches, "The Taming of the Shrew." It was Rough but made a big Hit. 

Then came our Final Blow-Out, which consisted of Caviar and Sweet Breads 
and Artichokes and Bosom of Partridge, Pigs Knuckles, Spring Onions and Grid- 
dle Cakes, et cetera, et cetera. Nothing came after it except the Pepsin Tablet and 
the Hot Water Bag. 

Then after a Week of Joys and Tears when we paraded our Organdies and 
Entertained the Old Folks from Home, our Alma Mater tossed us upon this 
Wicked World with only our Sheepskins to Guide Us.

"iSs J9ou Wttt" 



A stands for Ailing and artless affection. 

How they've retained it's a different question. 
C stands for Grossman and cunning and curl 

Once a "perfect wee boy" now a "perfect wee girl! 
E is for Edgell and exactitude 

Though heading our Honor Roll, she's far from a prude. 
G stands for Gasser and gurgling glee 

Her wee pouting mouth is just made for a "he." 
H is for Harrison, happy with health 

Hankering always for house party the twelfth. 
K is for Kimball and Kipling and keen 

She sure is a talker, you know when I mean. 
M 's for McClellan, McDougall and Marcus 

Upon certain subjects, they're both quite the larks-to-fuss. 
N stands for Norpell and nothing and none, 

If she ever gets wind of this, then we'll get our'n. 
P is for Perrin and peppy and Page 

"Petting" isn't to-day what it was in our age. 
W 's for Wilcox and Libby and Pete 

Three more different people you never could meet.

Still when you grow up how changed you can be. 
T stands for Titcomb and Tally and teddy 

She always must have one when she's tucked into beddie. 
U stands for Underwood and true unconcern 

You'd think even at Mid-years, she'd hours to burn. 
V is for Voorhees, but hardly virago 

As there's nothing to rhyme with that here's where I go.

When I die I want to be feeling deliciously tired — to have a feeling of 
achievement — to have fought a good fight, and won the right to rest. And then 
I shall be sinking slowly into a sweet sleep, and suddenly feel a pain, a pain which 
shall cleanse my soul of my body, and send me all tingling and rejoicing off into 
space. I shall feel as fresh and young and dancing and powerful and bright as 
Baldar. And there will be a strong rush of air upon me, and suddenly I shall find 
myself walking in the moonlight beside the sounding sea. The silvery haziness, 
the stretch of shining beach, and the pounding surf will invigorate me and I shall 
march onward with assurance like a hero of old. And within the sound of blowing 
wind and clamoring sea there will be a stillness, and that still small voice that has 
come down to me through the ages will speak, and space, and time, Eternity itself 
will be explained. 

Frances Keany '21

Twilight and the deepening shadows steal 
Through the great still forest deep in shade, 
And as the sunshine slowly starts to fade, 
From afar is heard the clear-toned vesper's peal ; 
And in the light of stained glass windows kneel, 
With reverent heads bowed low, both man and maid 
With humble hearts and spirits open laid 
To Him whose quiet presence now they feel.

®f)o£e little Comprefjensribeg 

Little D's have come to our report to stay, 
To batter down our average, and keep the A's away, 
And shoo the B's from off their perch, and even make a sweep 
Of C's and the C + 's which we have tried to reap. 
And all hard-working Seniors, when lessons must are learned, 
Gather 'round the Senior Parlour, and then are most concerned 
A'listenin' to the tragedies each other tells about — 
How the Comprehensives git you — 

Ef 

You 

Don't 

Watch Out! 

Once they was a little boy would simply alius fail, 
An' when he went to tutoring school, away down at Yale - 
He simply fooled and played around all through the Fall, 
An' when exam reports came in, he wasn't there at all! 
They looked for his Latin exam, and algebra and physics, 
They tried to find his chemistry, and looked him up in civics, 
But all on every paper was jist his name writ' out ■ — 
An' the Comprehensives'll git you — 

Ef 

You 

Don't 

Watch Out! 

And they say in the Senior Parlour, when it's Monday and blue, 
And they've looked up the English lesson, and everyone's said "oooh" 
An' the Latin's long and the Algebra's hard 
An' they're worrying about the marks on their card, 
"You better mind your Latin, and your algebra so dear, 
And crack your English lesson, and study pretty near 
All your French and idioms you're s'posed to know about — 
Er the Comprehensives'll git you — 

Ef 

You 

Don't 

Watch Out!"

3n tije #arben of IBabplon 

A poet once did wander into many foreign lands. One day he came to the 
town of Babylon, to the golden towers and turrets of the famous town of Baby- 
lon. And here he saw the hanging gardens that were the wonder of the world. 
Sitting in the garden he saw the princess, and his heart turned to hers as a lily to 
the dew. She was clad in a gown of woven silk as white as the clouds and as blue 
as the sky. Her flowing golden hair hung over her shoulders, catching the sun- 
beams in its silken meshes, and her dark blue eyes were full of laughter as she sat 
among the roses. 

And the poet drew forth his lyre and sang a song of life — a song of love, and 
youth, and joy to the princess in the hanging garden. His graceful figure was full 
of vigor and happiness as he stood in the sunlight in the streets of Babylon. The 
princess smiled and threw him a red rose, fresh and sparkling with the dew. Then 
she turned away and forgot the poet standing below, but went about her tasks. 
And the world passed by and heeded him not. 

That night the poet came again to the hanging garden where the princess 
stayed. He lifted his head to the cold, still stars and wept. Oh, life was cruel, 
life was sad! Then, on the wings of a little wind that scattered the rose petals 
over his face, there came a song from heaven. 

He lifted his lyre and sang a song of life -- a song of sorrow and deep-throb- 
bing mystery — a song that brought tears to the eyes and a dim far-away longing 
to the heart, but one that made the whole world stop and listen to its wonder and 
its beauty. 

Then down from the hanging garden came the princess to him, carrying an 
armful of roses, and together they walked, hand in hand, into the starlit night.

"Wfje J2eigporsf 



By Zona Gale 



This play deals with a typical group of country folk. The plot is simple and it is the actress' 
interpretation of the characters that gives the life and humour to the play. Who ever thought 
"Van" Lamb could draw such a long face over her "ailments," or that Florence Phillips would get 
so shrilly excited over a "Buffalo Bug," or Helen Goodale over "a cord of wood." But they did and 
made Mis' Moran, Mis' Trot, and Ezra Williams "real folks," as Granny would say, that little old 
lady whom Elizabeth Whittemore made us all love, with her dislike for carpet rags and longing to 
do something. Janet Warren was a delightful Mis' Abel, ruling over this group with her sharp 
tongue and warm heart. Last but not least, her daughter, Inez, where C. P. Damon was just lov- 
able, and Peter, the long, lanky, young man, who plainly agreed with us about Inez but to such a 
degree that he lost his tongue (who ever heard of Mary doing that) as well as control of his limbs in 
her presence. And only Mary Polk could have been that Peter! 

All these people found they could, in spite of many personal difficulties, plan and contribute 
towards a shower of food and clothes for the poor sweet neighbor that Muriel Moxley made in the 
part of Mis' Ellsworth, who unexpectedly learned that her nephew was coming to live with her. In 
this neighborly preparation Peter "forgot himself" and the love story ended happily. Though the 
little boy did not come, we are gladdened and refreshed by the kindness and sympathy of this group 
of real neighbors.

"E\)t Jflortst Mop 



By Winifred Hawkridge 



In Mr. Slovsky's flower shop many little romances and long love stories come to an end, and 
Maude, the saleswoman, romantic and sympathetic, takes a real personal interest in each one, 
planning engagements and weddings as if they were her own. To put a personal interest into the 
business, Maude, with the consent of Mr. Slovsky, who has great faith in her, and the aid of Henry, 
the little clerk and general utility boy whose admiration for this young lady makes him a willing 
listener to the long flights into the flower histories of many of the old customers, has sent to each 
one complimentary bouquets according to the size of their bills with the shop. On the list appears 
the item "Orchids for Miss Wells," an old spinster, whose flower bill with Slovsky's had been 
limited to an Easter lily every spring, which she sent to the fiance, Mr. Jackson, to whom she had 
been engaged for fifteen years. In order to bring about the marriage Maude has sent them without 
a card, and Miss Wells, when she appears wearing the flowers, is excited and mystified to find that, 
according to Maude, they have been sent by some tall, dark man without "dear Mr. Jackson's" 
knowledge. 

After Miss Wells has gone on into the shop to indulge in some bulbs Mr. Slovsky discharges 
Maude because of her foolish extravagance in sending his precious orchids to such a customer. Just 
as she is leaving Mr. Jackson enters to inquire about the flowers which his fiancee is wearing and 
Maude again comes to the rescue and mysteriously describes the unknown suitor. Miss Wells re- 
turns from the other room, and a very humorous scene follows, in which Maude is reinstated once 
more, and receives a large order for white roses and lilies of the valley for the wedding of Miss Wells 
and Mr. Jackson. 

Who would believe that Jane could be the important, smart little Henry whom we all loved, 
and Alex, the gesticulating, business-like Mr. Slovsky? Or that Sandy could become an egotistical, 
fastidious Mr. Jackson, and Laura the sweet, hopeful Miss Wells? Last but not least there was 
Maude, whom Miss Morgan played, as only she can do, in the absence of Ruth Hill. Each one did 
so well that the flower business will always be absorbing, appealing and twice as entertaining as 
usual.

"3t ftappeneb" 



By Jessamine Rugg 

Jane is beautiful and Jane is — well, Jane is quite a truthful portrait of everything that's sweet 
and good and she loves her best friend's fiance because — well, she just can't help it ! What a com- 
fort to have a friend who understands and sympathizes as Louise does and who can be trusted to 
keep a confidence. Gwendolyn Bloomfield as Louise made us feel sure that Jane's secret was hers 
too and that Jack would never know how deep an affection Jane had for him. 

And now, does a girl who dotes on jazz and cigarettes and her own good time first, last and al- 
ways, deserve a fine, clean-cut young man with high ideals? Of course not ! That's why Jack was 
left alone heart-sick and disgusted when Anita eloped with a football star at the Yale Prom. Lou- 
ise Mount played the part of scatter-brain Anita and very cleverly told us of "a honey- 
moon on Honolulu Bay." Olive Howard was her prize husband and we could not help laughing at 
his indifferent manner towards his kidnapped bride. 

Jane's mother was the real life of the play, a fashionably dressed and gossipy bridge fiend, 
whose nerves must be stimulated by parties and news of other people's affairs. Vera Barnett made 
a stunning mother and her wit and by-play fascinated the audience. 

So "It Happened" that Jack had an awakening and realized he had been loving a sweet little 
girl who was always kind and thoughtful and always understood, and she wasn't Anita, she was 
Jane! We do not blame Elizabeth Thompson who played Jane for holding Jack up as her ideal. 
Elizabeth Hutchinson made a perfect lover and who couldn't be happy for ever and ever with 
him? The cast was completed by Alice Hallett, who made a charming little French maid. 



"Pucfeskin &nne" 

By Edith Page 

Charles Bradshaw Anne Darling Buckskin Anne Susanna Welborn 

Sir Kenneth Gwynne Margaret Ailing William Gwynne Lydia Kunkel 

Servant Natalie Page 



Whoop -ee-e!! A flash of brown — a jingle of beads, then a laugh! Thus did the wild 
nymph of the woods, Buckskin Anne, make her entrance upon a very interesting scene — a rather 
vitally interesting scene, as it concerned this young lady's ( !) future life. Her father, Charles Brad- 
shaw, had just finished making plans for her marriage to a perfectly strange, perfectly handsome 
young Englishman, whom she soon found was the son of her father's friend of by-gone years. Both 
father, Sir Kenneth Gwynne, and son had just arrived in America from England, and because many 
things had gone wrong with them in their old home were to live here. The whole thing had been 
very sudden, but Buckskin Anne rose to the occasion and treating it all as a huge joke set about to 
shock and fascinate her future lord and master. William went through several stages of shocked- 
ness and then fell completely in love with her. But entirely contrary to her plans Anne was not only 
strongly attracted by this young Englishman, but with overwhelming suddenness felt her childish- 
ness, her crude unconventional mode of living and dressing. With one quick, mischievous smile, a 
bound — and she was gone! William, who hadn't seen the smile, was unconsolable. 

There was a rustling in the doorway. It was Anne — but oh, so different. Gloriously beau- 
tiful in her mother's wedding gown — tremulously conscious of her love — this new something 
that has come over her. She timidly questions their approval. William says nothing, but his 
heart is in his eyes — her father boisterously enthusiastic — Sir Kenneth honestly admiring. 

Anne is deliciously happy. With a quick, impulsive movement she grasps a tomahawk, leaps 
upon the table and is about to utter another of her blood-curdling war hoops, but her gaze en- 
( ounters William's. "William, wouldst kiss my hand instead?"

Once upon a time there was a Mason named Tony, who lived in the midst of 
the Grime, Soot and dust of the city. And How He hated it! He thought it a pity 
to Mar So his life, and having cudgeled his Bean, he decided the only thing to do 
was to move into the country. When everything had Been Attended to, he set 
forth as cheerful as a Robin Sunday morning; he scrambled up a Craig, and near 
a mountain Ash Town looked off into the distance. Shortly after he came to a 
brook which he had to Wade. He was going by an orchard and stopped to admire 
each tree and leaFlet. Cherries were ripe and the Mason thought he would enjoy 
some of them. He found in a nest hidden among the cherrieS weeny robin's eggs. 
Suddenly two constables sprang on him and placed him under arrest for tres- 
passing. "You can't go onto private grounds even in the country. They belong 
to the Rich. Hard, Son, but you'll have to pay a fine or come to jail." The Ma- 
son counted the nicKels He had and having paid his Bail He started back from 
whence he had come. He got a lift part of the way on an Adams express wagon 
and at the next town he went to the Baker's and bought a loaf of bread and some 
Butter. Fields were full of Hop (s) Kindred plants etc. Bank, Croft and slopes 
were covered with daisies. He went down sPookey Putnam Lane remembering 
the stories he had heard of murders in the Rue Morgue and a Stealthy step startled 
him, so that he ran until he heard his friend Mathew Singing the bugle call to 
Abbot.
